High on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain, 50 km from Cape Town, lies the family-owned Delheim estate with 120 hectares of vineyards. Here the Sperling family has been making wines of character for many decades. Visitors to our beautiful farm will be greeted by breathtaking views and welcomed by a true sense of family hospitality!
80 years later and Delheim still reflects the traditions and values of the Sperling family's commitment to quality. Delheim is owned by the Sperling family. Patriarch and South African wine industry legend, late Michael Hans “Spatz” Sperling was a pioneer and one of the proud founding members of the Stellenbosch Wine Route..one of the first wine routes in South Africa!
At Delheim we produce a range of award-winning wines, led by the majestic Grand Reserve, which since its release in 1981, has been honoured with much prestigious recognition. Our ever-popular Pinotage Rosé (the 1st of its kind to be produced in South Africa in 1976) and the quirky Spatzendreck dessert wine are just some of the favourites which have helped to turn Delheim into a household name. A holistic approach to the community and land, to winemaking and to enduring good business practices is what sustains life at Delheim. The aim has always been to nurture a strong culture of sustainable development on the farm and within the community.
